DeSoto County soldiers will have some extra care this holiday thanks to some area Girl Scouts from Olive Branch.
The girls sent 125 Christmas Care boxes to deployed service men and women from DeSoto County.
Olive Branch Girl Scout Junior Troop 10528 started collecting items at Olive Branch Intermediate School.
After a contest, the students in Ms. Montgomery’s class raised more than 200 items to send off to the soldiers.
Family and friends also contributed to the efforts with donations.
